make your checkboxes in the form an array with the index being the customer


in the form ...
foreach($customers as $cust)
{       echo("<tr>");
        echo("<input type='hidden' name='status[{$cust["id"]}]'
        echo("<input type='checkbox' name='status[{$cust["id"]}]'");
        if ($cust["status"]) echo(" checked");

and when processing
foreach($_POST["status"] as $custid=>status)
{       ... // update query for each customer
